HELP AUTISTIC CHILDREN IN OUR LOCAL AREA GET THE EDUCATION THEY DESERVE

Local AUTISTIC kids are being told they wont be able to attend their local highschool as there is no position In the special education classes and will need to attend another school in outer regions with up to an hours travel time each way.

We are petitioning to help get another Class opened at Picton Highschool so these kids can attend school locally

Every child deserves the right to education, but its always been a battle to get the rights that an autistic child needs to get there education.....
We have two local boys who are so excited to be starting high school next year but only to be told that there is no position in the special education class in our local area Picton High School. To compensate this the parents were informed that they could get a position in the special education classes in the iIlawarra Region.
Please note that the illawarra Region is 57.8km each way from Tahmoor that equals to a 50 to 60 min drive each way.
All we are asking is that Picton High School open a second Special Education class to allow the boys to attend there local high school with there peers and friends that they already attend school with.
